From the Big Bang to WeWork: London’s changing workplaces


Tuesday 02 March 2021
10:00 - 11:10

Where and how we work has tremendously changed over the last 15 years, then could this knowledge prepare us for the dramatic disruption covid-19 continues to cause to our workplace? This webinar takes look at the evolution of key business districts across the capital.
From the City of London to Canary Wharf, the economy and geography of workplaces have dramatically changed over the last 15 years. London became a global financial centre and continued to embrace technological and social revolutions, from the boom of open plan offices in tall buildings to the rise of co-working spaces with a focus on wellbeing and the green agenda. 
Structural shifts in working patterns and disruptive technologies have already meant that more innovative mixed-use building typologies that combine adequate space for working and living are overdue. We are now in the biggest working from home experiment in history, with radical changes needed to workspace design, maintenance and management regimes needed if people are to return to the office. 
This webinar takes look at the evolution of key business districts across the capital. What lessons can we learn from the last 15 years that will prepare us for the future transformation of workspaces across London?
